I have been working with textiles for about ten years. With a background in clothing construction, many of the techniques I use are machine or hand sewing methods learned from working in a variety of specialized fields. Costuming, bespoke tailoring, and millinery, to name a few. Each piece I create begins with a concept which is then visually expressed using the materials and techniques I adore: fabric and sewing.
The intention of Eyetrade Handmade is to discover the potential in everyday objects. To engage users in ways that will make them smile and quirk their heads. Creating a different perspective for objects that are overlooked. I use found and discarded materials to create this new perspective. Striving to find magic in the mundane.
To me, art is the perfect representation of Truth because it can be interpreted differently by many different people. The same way three people can all experience the same event and all three people can have completely different stories. Art is how I understand and communicate with myself and the world around me.
